The LuLac Edition #1433, Jan. 11th, 2011



Adding still another accomplishment to a life of public service, Corey Stevens was sworn in as a top Judge in the Commonwealth. Chief Justice Ron Castille did the honors. Last year, Stevens was unanimously elected president by 15 judges of the statewide intermediate appellate court and succeeded Judge Kate Ford Elliott. Stevens was elected to the Superior Court in 1997 and won retention in 2007. Before that he was a state rep., representing the 116th District, served four years as Luzerne County District Attorney from 1988 to 1992 and was elected to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas in 1991 in a nail biter of a race with the late Charles Buffalino. Stevens had won the Republican primary and narrowly won the Democratic primary to secure both nominations.


Add that title to that of State Senator. Both John Yudichak and John Blake have garnered minority committee chairmanships as the Pa. Senate reorganizes for its new session starting on January 19th.
The Times Leader reports that Blake was picked to chair the Intergovernmental Operations and Local Government committees while Yudichak was appointed by Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa to be the ranking Democrat on the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee.
Yudichak won the seat long held by Ray Musto, while Blake won the seat held by Costa’s predecessor, Democratic Leader Bob Mellow.
This news is good for LuLac land mainly because there is some continuity here. This is due in no small part to the respect both Musto and Mellow had with the Senate Leadership as well as the regard for the two newcomers.


I knew Rush Limbaugh would not disappoint me. On the Tuscon Tragedy, I heard Rush say Monday that the Democrats were rubbing their hands together in glee because of the attack on Congresswoman Giffords. Limbaugh said the Democrats were happy because they could pin the blame on the shootings on him, the Tea Party and Sarah Palin. He then proceeded to defend the latter. I know of no sane person, Democrat, Republican or Third Party member who was gleeful over these developments. But as I predicted in Edition # 1431 I knew he’d be at it. My observation about Limbaugh and his ilk is this: they can’t stop, no matter the case, or the circumstance. Once before in American history, an American (Joseph Welch) questioned the integrity of another bully. Here’s how that went:

Limbaugh appears to have hit the bull's eye.
can i use "bull's eye" or "target"? - guess the store may have to change it's name).

Tuscon. Not Tuscan.

Say what you will but at least spell correctly.

I tend to think, while Rush's use of the term salivating may be an overstatement, it was the left leaning media that started almost immediately. And who was the one to come in on the weekend to do a special commentary blaming the right?

I think people need to realize that whatever occurs you cannot reason with the far right. They take their cue from Rush and if you showed them a picture of a circle and Rush called it a square they would argue his point until they were blue in the face. No reasoning with fanatical minds.
Hypocrites?? Of course, but it is not worth wasting time worrying about them.
I pray for the souls of the dead and the recovery of the living. I could not, however, help but to continually think of Jim Brady all weekend when hearing of THe Congresswoman's progress. We can all hope for a miracle but it is highly likely that she will be incapacitated to a major degree if she survives; at least I could sense this looking into the faces of her surgeons.
Who will the next victim be/and are we as a people ready to sit down and actually deal with a world where minds have overtaken reason?
Good Luck AMerica.

The Joseph Welch slapdown of Joe McCarthy is one of the great moments in American history and as significant today as it was all those years ago. Tail Gunner Joe was the prototype of the Rush Limbo
character and interestingly also a drug addict like Limbo! My question is where are the Joseph Welchs and Ed Murrows of today?

I'm curious. The left attacks Rush over the weekend. There is no, as of yet, connection between the alleged murderer/assassin and Palin, Tea Party, or Rush. If anything a pot smoking, philosophical, flag burner sounds more like he would be more of a fan of a fired local morning show host than Rush. Anyway, Olberman comes in on a weekend and does a special commentary, all liberal commentators are on t.v., the Huffington Post, Daily Kos, the Raw Story are all attacking Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush et al... Rush calls them out on their exploitation of the tragedy and instead of being an namby pamby, wussified, wimp; Rush comes out fighting and he is the one you are vilifying? Really Dave?
What would Rush have had to say if he wasn't attacked first? Why do you think these folks go after Rush? Mention Rush and they get attention.
MSNBC's entire nightly line up combined doesn't get ratings equivalent to a 1/4 hour of Rush.
